Nicolas Rossignol is one of the best examples of a new generation of Burgundy wine makers whose great wines lie in the future rather than the past. Born in 1974, Nicolas represents the fifth generation of his family in Volnay. He started to make the wines of his 'Rossignol-Jeanniard' family domaine when he was just twenty. In 1997, Nicolas started his own domaine with three hectares of vines inherited from an uncle. Now, his vineyard covers 16 hectares, spread over the communes of Volnay, Pommard, Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Pernand- Vergelesses.
